There are many regulations concerned with construction, here we refer only to those of direct interest with respect to construction fixings.


Construction Products Regulation

In July 2013 the Construction Products Directive will be replaced by the Construction Products Regulation (CPR). This regulation places new requirements on all parties who sell construction products, including anchors for construction, to facilitate free movement of construction products within the EU.

Building Regulations – England

The Building Regulations referred to here set the standards for design and construction which apply to most new buildings and alterations to existing buildings in England.

Practical guidance on ways to comply with the functional requirements in the Building Regulations is outlined in a series of 'Approved Documents' published by the Department for Communities and Local Government. Of these the one concerned with anchors is Approved Documents Part A - Structural Safety.
